Well, I finally got up the nerve to tackle changing out my factory "beep beep" horn to a set of 500&600 PIAA Sport horns. I am not real handy in the mechanical persuasion- I was a flyer, not a fixer. Fixers are some of my favorite people and I have a deep respect for their dedication and abilities. I'm also not real fond of taking the front off of a brand new car, but thanks to the photos and tips available courtesy of other forum members, I was able to get the job done without damaging my wife's Sonata Limited. I kept it simple by using the existing wiring and plug utilizing male connectors cut in half to connect to the factory horn plug. It worked great. I mounted the horns on the stud the factory horn was monuted on. I peeled off the flashy metallic racing checkers with the PIAA logo so the horns wouldn't show through the grill. A pretty painless process with the exception of a few scrapes on the hands from the tight quarters while removing the screws from the grill.

From my experience, it was about 2 hours, but that was because I was being really careful and putzing over the lengths of the wires. Probably for someone with some electrical know-how -- 1 hour including grille removal and reinstall.

The grill removal and reinstall took most of the time. It would be faster doing it a second time. The horn install probably took about 20 minutes.

You should post a vid of the horn so we can all hear it. I'd love to hear all the horns people are installing so I can decide which one I want.

Check youtube.com for the PIAA Sport Horns 500&600 Hz. They also have 400&500 Hz horns. I just liked the higher pitch a little better, but both have a nice tone and definitely will get attention.
